The plan is to write for the next few hours, and then call Kevin and see if he's up for going to Marshall Fields and looking at comfy chairs. We're still questing for my comfy chair -- the difficulty is that it needs to be 32" or less in at least one dimension, in order to fit through our narrow hallway. Crate and Barrel has a few that would work, but oof, they're expensive, even upholstered in fabric rather than leather, and even with the big sale that's going on right now. That one in a dark red fabric would be around $1200, which is still something like 4 times what I've ever paid for a piece of furniture -- I'm clearly not ready for grown-up furniture prices yet; they make my stomach churn. And besides, Kevin doesn't love any of their styles. Marshall Fields is offering 40% off any single piece of furniture bought on this coming Saturday, so we're going to swing by this evening, I think, and see if they have anything workable.
Okay, enough babbling. Write write write.
